    I have 13 chicks that are one to three days old in a brooder.The last one that hachted is the biggest one and it chirps every 3 or4 minutes like its in pain,even when it is asleep it will wake up doing that.It is drinking and eating,no pasty butt,warm enough not to warm,the others are fine its just this one.Its an orpington.It has done this since it hatched yeterday.Any ideas?

    Im kinda new to the whole chciken stuff but my chicks chirp all the time... Maybe a lil diluted gatorade for added nutrient would help?doing they sound like happy chirps or it a sreek chirping sound?
